Add the Pure Lard to a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted, sprinkle the cassava flour over the melted lard. Whisk continuously until the flour is dissolved and begins to darken in color, about 3 minutes.


Add the coconut cream and continue to whisk. The mixture should thicken up significantly. Add 2 cups of the broth and continue to whisk until the gravy is smooth. Cook for 5-10 minutes at medium-high heat to thicken the gravy further. If a runnier gravy is preferred, continue to add more broth in ¼ cup increments until the desired consistency is reached.


Remove from the heat and season with sea salt and black pepper, as desired. The gravy will thicken as it cools.
